One Good Tern deserves a….fish!

Spent a couple of hours at Grindstone Marsh today. Had some fun watching this hard working Tern trying to get lunch. He finally succeeded!

Life Through The Lens – Part II – April 10 Image

This afternoon I dropped by La Salle Park. It was very windy and the waves were crashing up along the rocks. The birds that were flying were just letting the wind carry them..oh to be so free! This duck was not having to work to hard!

This morning I came across a great article on Macro photography. Macro is one area of photography I have rarely ventured into. I do have a half decent macro lens, but perhaps I just have not given it much thought over the years. I had purchased some flowers for my wife for Valentines Day (yes they are still alive!). I put them in front of a window since there was lots of warm daylight streaming in. I played around with the setup for quite some time and used some off camera flash as well. The shot below is after running the image through a filter in Photoshop.

I took part in a Hamilton naturalist drive / walk this afternoon for a couple of hours in search of some birds. We did see a few different owls, but they are so well camouflaged that pictures of them simply won’t show anything. Afterwards I headed to Hamilton Bay and photographed a couple of “Ice Surfers”. Not sure if this will make the Olympics but they were having fun!

I dropped by Woodland Cemetery this morning for an hour or so. There were lots of small creatures out and about on a beautiful winter day.

Today I was on the pier at the Burlington Lift Bridge. I was there photographing ducks and so forth. I captured a few good shots of some of the different ducks, I also happened to snap a couple of shots of the ice along the concrete barrier on one side of the pier. Apparently my fascination with ice continues since I decided to use that shot instead of any of the shots of the ducks. 🙂 I simply love the simplicity of these images and the abstract lines and shapes created by the ice.
